Yeah, I play Dead Island with a controller because of the shitty port job. Looking around with the mouse is very, very choppy..

I actually played Dead Island with a KB/mouse - and was fine w/ the PC controls.

About the control-pad - even though I sucked at it, putting Dead Island in the "analog mode" was pretty cool...

Can anyone tellme about the WotR player base?. I'm loving the game, but I'm reading about how many people hate it... and how the game is dead. I know NOW is different, maybe because the steam free weekend.

Is just that I don't want to buy a game I'm beginning to like... just to find is dead a week later... without a SP campaign :(

Who said it was dead? Even in the slowest hours, I've always been able to find a few mostly full servers in my region.

To be fair, we in the Midwest (or Michigan, at least), just got New Belgium shipping to us this fall. People sort of flipped their shit at the time. I think that was a bit of an overreaction, but New Belgium is a really solid brewery, and their beer, at least at stores around here, tends to be surprisingly cheap for the quality.


With what's available from in-state breweries, it's tough for me to imagine anyone in Michigan flipping out over anything that shows up from out-of-state.

I liked Super House of Dead Ninjas a lot and normally I love the controller but the game is built in a lot of rapid d pad shifts. Keyboard works great for it if you can handle one. An arcade stick might work too but I am not used to one.

Reading some posts on the steam forums. Also there's a lot of hate from players on Metacritic... maybe because it was too buggy/unbalanced at launch or something like that... Almost all bad reviews/hate are from last year

I usually don't care about critic (I love Clive Barker's Jericho), so that numbers doesn't matters to me, only the player base

Oh, right. The game was a pretty big mess when it first launched, from what I hear. It's gotten a lot better, but it's the sort of game where new content is added fairly frequently and free of charge (new weapons, armor, etc), so there's a lot of balance tweaking with each update to keep things "fair" and competitive. Right now people are criticizing the power of bows with the addition of fire arrows.

As for player base, like I said, it's not CoD, but it's still quite active.

That's pretty much every Paradox game. The CEO admitted in interviews that they didn't have enough money to keep games in development long enough to get rid of most of the bugs so they just released knowing it was too early and that the games were buggy.

He's said recently that they're in a better financial state now and going forward there should be less buggy releases. Supposedly.

I guess one good thing about backlogging games and/or waiting for cheap sales is that you remain ignorant of buggy messes releases and by the time you do play the game (if you do) it will hopefully have been all patched up. :-P

Well, yeah, bad word choice... I "just" liked it too... :lol:

Really, I liked it for what it tried to do. It was short, and "a bit" repetitive... but all else was great. Is not at the same quality level as Undying, but it didnt deserve all the hate.

This is the main reason I hardly ever buy games on release. The amount of patching sometimes required is pretty substantial. Skyrim or any other major RPG require at least 3-4 months before all the major issues are patched out. I like to wait until all those patches are out and by then, most titles can be had for 66-75% off.

Okay someone made a game about romancing an Alpaca. No really. Well technically, it's a about a guy whose girlfriend turns into an Alpaca one day and he continues to romance her.

Paca Plus

A recent review is here: http://www.gamepodun...paca-plus-r2145

And the game can be bought (in English or Engrish anyhow) for $11 here: http://www.dlsite.co...d/RE083922.html

Man, I HATE it when that happens. But what do you do?

True love knows no bounds.

I actually do want to play this now that I know it exists, but that's more than I'm willing to spend on a random VN.

I'll be honest - we're throwing science at the wall here to see what sticks. No idea what it'll do. Probably nothing. Best-case scenario, you might get some superpowers. Worst case, some tumors, which we'll cut out. " - C. Johnson

Motoki: We are sick of seeing you kill your self with these horrible games. You are not the only ones affected by your actions. When you spread these games you get some poor souls to play along with you. After that they are no long the same. If you do not stop we will no longer just laugh and joke about your posts. We will be forced to try to hide them with pictures of cheeseburgers and pretend they never even happened. Please go get help...

Paca Plus is no Hatoful Boyfriend. Or maybe I just have a thing for bishonen pigeons.

I'd vote for both of them if they were put on Greenlight, though.

I'm not sure, if it was mentioned, because I've got lost during beer discussion, then a bit confused by that alpaca game. Anyway, the price of Rayman Origins has been permanently dropped to $19.99 / 14,99€ / £12.99.
